Jake Roberts: “I was in a pretty dark place six months ago”

filed to GERWECK.NET:

Wrestling 101 has an interview up with Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts:

Some quotes:

* [Before starting DDP Yoga] I was in a pretty dark place six months
ago, I had basically given up on life and everything else because
nothing was fun anymore, I didn’t have good days, they were all just
sh*t days, I would wake up in the mornings and be pissed off I was
still alive, the only reason I didn’t commit suicide is because I
didn’t want to hurt my family more than I had already hurt them.

* [Working with Steve Austin] Steve came to me and wanted help, I got
with him because I respected his work in the ring and his dedication.
Everyday he had a match he would call me and tell me what went on, and
I would tell him what he should have done there or what he shouldn?t
have done here and I schooled him.

* [On the possibility of entering the WWE Hall of Fame] …if it
happens it happens and maybe it will someday and if it doesn’t my life
won’t be changed by it, it could be enhanced a bit by it but it’s not
going to change.

    A clean and sober Jake Roberts is an asset to any wrestling promotion. Here’s to his continued sobriety and hopefully we see him in the WWE again in some form!

  3. Common Cents says:

    It’s funny because even when he was HIGH as fu*k in the Beyond the Mat documentary, he had more clarity, more charisma, more personality then most of the “Sports Entertainers” of today. The Best wishes to Mr. DDT, and hopefully he can become a helpful member of the wrestling community, Ala Jake Roberts Wrestling School of Ring Psychology and General Badassery.
